Dr. William Kilgo recently was appointed assistant professor of neurology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and serves as a neurologist with USA Physicians Group.
Dr. Kilgo received his medical degree and completed his residency training in neurology at the USA College of Medicine, and he completed a neurology fellowship with a focus on neuroimmunology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
“Rejoining the program where I completed my medical school and residency training is exciting, as I will have the opportunity to mentor medical students and neurology residents. I especially look forward to providing a service as a neuroimmunologist to the Gulf Coast which is in short supply - not just here, but around the country,” Dr. Kilgo said.
His specialty is multiple sclerosis, and he will be practicing with Dr. Elizabeth Minto, assistant professor of neurology, who also specializes in multiple sclerosis. Dr. Kilgo said he hopes to increase access to clinical trials for patients with multiple sclerosis and rare diseases like neuromyelitis optica (NMO).
Dr. Kilgo has received many awards and scholarships including the Best Neurology Resident, which was given to him by the USA College of Medicine class of 2017. He is a member of the Alabama Academy of Neurology and American Academy of Neurology, among others, and he has been published in three abstracts.
Dr. Kilgo will begin seeing patients Aug. 1. To make an appointment, call (251) 660-5108.
